Abstract (en)

A video camera (100) that has a high-speed imaging function capable of reading the electrical charge from a solid-state imaging section (1) a plurality of times during one field period and displaying a plurality of images on a display (8), has a blanking circuit (14) that leaves blanks at least one image of the plurality of images. The video camera (100) also has a shift function that, when one image is left and the others are blank, shifts the position on the display of that one image. An electronic zoom circuit (105) of the video camera (100) inputs a video signal that includes n images (where n is an integer 2 or greater) within one field period, and a sync pulse that has a frequency that is n times the frequency of a vertical sync signal that is included in the video signal, and enlarges the n images included in the video signal about distinctive zooming centers, based on the sync pulse. <IMAGE>
